Stamford bridge taunting Wenger.
"We know who you are We know who you are Specialist of Failure we know who you are".
I know but Arsenal reached the final in 2006 so it's very fine margins that go beyond simply the responsibility of the manager. Actually the reason I didn't mention the Champions League was because you said a decade so I assumed you were skipping over the FA Cup in 2005 and were referring to solely domestic leagues - not that I'm saying an FA Cup equals the Champions League, I'm just saying that it's very thin margins which decide cup competitions.
Regarding this, Arsenal are not as rich as Chelsea, United or Man City so I believe comparing Arsenal to Bayern, Real and Barca goes a bit too far. They are not historically as successful, financially as strong or globally as big.
The reason Arsenal fans have such high expectations is because Wenger propelled them to the top of the game domestically and to an extent in Europe, and in this era of super-clubs Arsenal have been near the top - but to slip from that point fits in with their history. They are a great club but are not as big as the above three, nor as big as Milan or Juventus, so I believe the comparison is somewhat flawed.
Now I'm sure it's hugely frustrating to be an Arsenal fan, especially with results like today and the lack of even domestic cups, and I am genuinely interested to know whether a top-four finish and the FA Cup would be considered a successful season?
But I genuinely believe that expecting Arsenal to win the league in any given season is quite unrealistic given the financial clout of their opponents, and the same goes for continental competition.
Liverpool should do something about that shit defense though.
Well, we have a very attacking style. Leaky defense is a shame, but I see it as an inevitable by-product of being so expansive.
The SAS can fire us to 100 league goals this season
Arsenal should withdraw from big matches away from home.
The goals it suffered against City, Liverpool and now Chelsea are about 50% of all goals they took, it's really pathetic.
Wenger stubbornly refuses to change his tactics when away to the big teams, and it costs him dearly.
Key is to let them have possession until they reach the halfway line. Press 'em in midfield, win the ball then break and run in behind 'em.
suprised Liverpool has so many fans
last time they won anything big that wasn't am fluke Guns N' Roses were topping the charts
Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.
For anyone under 30, Liverpool have generally been a dull club playing horrific football.
This is the first genuinely exciting Liverpool team I've seen. They are brilliant to watch.
We were pragmatic under Houllier and Hodgson. Had our moments under Benitez.
